Fig. M1. Linking the size structure, trophic interactions, and primary production. Panel (A) shows the relationship between primary production and omnivorous feeding of macrozooplankton; the intensity of omnivorous feeding demonstrates a positive linear relationship with primary productivity. Panel (B) shows the convex relationship between the nonlinearity of ISD and primary production.
